Lisa and Carrie-Ann Beaney currently live in a taxpayer-paid “single B&B room” in England with their four children and claim they are too stressed to work because of homophobic bullying.
Lisa, 30, quit her job at McDonald’s after just three months and Carrie-Ann 23 has never worked at all. Outrageous.
They each had one child before becoming a couple, then, with no money or skills, they decided they wanted another baby and persuaded a male friend to donate the sperm they needed for artificial insemination at home. They each got pregnant and both gave birth last year. Pregnancies and births, no doubt, paid by the taxpayers.
After receiving £53,000-a-year in benefits which includes £608-a-week for their B&B room, income support and child benefits, they’re now complaining that their house isn’t big enough! In addition to their audaciousness in wanting a bigger home, they’re playing the homophobic card – “It does feel like we were persecuted because of our sexuality and I think the council needs to show us some sympathy.”
While this story comes from across the pond, there’s no doubt in my mind that we’ll be hearing more and more stories like this here at home. The ever-growing welfare state in the United States will make sure of that.
According to the 4th quarter 2011 U.S. Census Bureau report, 27% ofU.S. citizens are on Medicaid, a staggering 49 million are receiving food stamps and 13.4 million are living in subsidized housing.
In another example, how many times have I heard people say, “I’m waiting for my tax refund” when, in fact, there’s no way they’ve paid enough taxes to actually get a tax refund? How can anyone making minimum wage at McDonalds get a tax refund of thousands of dollars? Because what they’re actually getting is a tax credit and, if you’ve ever read any of my articles, you know this is probably my biggest pet peeves. As far as I’m concerned, if the feds won’t repeal tax credits outright, then it should be changed so that tax credits do not exceed the amount of taxes you actually pay into the system.
So as long as the government makes it easier and easier for people to apply for and receive government benefits, we’re always going to have people who want more and more just like these two idiots in England. They had no jobs, they had no prospects for jobs, they apparently have no marketable skills, they already had two children they can’t afford, and then both (!) decided to get artificially inseminated by another bozo and have two more children they can’t afford. What’s most shocking to me is their sense of entitlement. Bottom line, Lisa and Carrie-Ann are too stupid to raise weeds, let alone children.
This may be happening in England right now, but I would bet dollars for donuts that we’re going to be reading similar stories here in the United States. It’s only a matter of time. And we, the productive, working people will continue to take care of these completely irresponsible, selfish, worthless human beings.
If they’re not going to work, then why aren’t they doing some sort of volunteer service in exchange for all the taxpayers are giving them? I’ve written about this before. Why aren’t welfare recipients required to do some sort of community service? First of all, any decent human being should be doing this voluntarily if they’re getting something for nothing. But since that’s not happening on any large scale, then the government, representing the people who are actually footing the bill, should require it.
If I sound angry, it’s because I am. What happened to personal responsibility? Day after day, year after year, this quality which madeAmerica great is fading fast. What used to be the American Dream – work hard and you can achieve anything – - is definitely a thing of the past. The toothpaste is out of the tube and as long as the government is willing to take care of these people, they’ll be more lined up, waiting with their hand outs for “their share” of the new American Dream – something for nothing.
Unfortunately, I get it.
